      I agree with you on the color combo with this car...I have a feeling they ran around much the the Emperor with no clothes


      I might take you up on a close up just for better color picking, I will let you know though, THANKS!!

      What color are you thinking of going on the interior?

          hard telling; a white would be just as 'crisp' looking as the aqua - then I would think carrying the same white into the headliner and seats with a softer aqua/turquoise bolsters and a deep based aqua/turquoise for the carpet

          One might need to view the whole car on a sunny day

          an off white/cream/eggshell would 'soften' the whole look basically making paint more of a focal point - the same bolster color as above, but one could use a soft black carpet as well

          I can poke about and try setting up some fabric color samples together and post them later...

            The pictures of the code 84 - tan leather seats and two tone door panels - are from my car. If there are other pictures that would help just let me know and I'll take them. As for interest in interiors. I need tan leather seats for the 60 sunroof and seats and door panels for my 59 j-bird. One question. The black bolsters on my white/black interior of the 59 are good, it is just the white seat part that needs to be replaced. Can these be remade just replacing the white seating part?

              my headliner right now is in remarkable shape no rips tears or split threads and its kind of a off white and since its not trashed i dont see a reason to mess with it (ya know if its not broke dont fix it type thing) so ill prolly go with an interrior color close to my headliner and then do the outer top in a obviously different shade or something for contrast

              but i am thinking the bird almost cries for a 2 toned interrior soo i'll havta think onit some more

                Hey Guys,
                I took the door panel off Christine Sunday. I don't know about the fiber board behind the door trim in the '58-'59, but the fiber board in Christine '60 Thunderbird is molded
                I hope this does not put a kink in your plans!

                  molded! EWeeeee!
                  In the Pristine Christine?


                  Nope, not changing my plans, not going with absorbent material to replace it...it will cost a pinch more than the regular stuff, but since IT won't be sucking air/moisture/dirt through the upholstery - everything will last longer and be cleaner.

                  as for 57ford/60tbird's post:
                  we can do: need a close up pic of the headliner to grab the color - or run to a paint store and grab some sample color strips and match to the best ability - it might be a "smoother" look to make the landau match rather than different/conflicting - but thats my opinion - add three cents and you can get yer self a hunk o'Bazooka.....LOL

                    Check this interior out Cathie. This is a tastefully done restomod. I personally love the car and everything about it... except for the bezel around the radio. The door panels and seats are real nice.

                        Ya I was looking close at the pics and the oil pan is sitting on the ground. There is a link to a write up about the car in there somewhere and it says that the car has airbags. He can set it down anywhere he wants. I would like to see a pic of it at its ride height.

                          As far as I'm concerned, he ruined a good car.
                          My son had a Ford Ranger that had airbags on it I rode in it 160 miles one day and told him I would never step foot in that truck again. You hit a bump in the road and jar your teeth out.
                          I've road farm hay wagons that ride better then that!!!

                            My son has his 63 Chev on air bags and can sit that on its belly but for every day driving (it is his daily driver) he raises it about 6 inches. The ride is excellent with no jarring but he does raise it when going over spedd bumps and the like to protect the exhaust etc.

                            Air bags are not common over here and they do raise a lot of eyebrows when adjusted. I guess it is just part of the whole "lowrider" scene, each to their own!

                            That is a gorgeous bird though, I like the work except for that radio as well. It looks clumsy (radio).

                                I really like the '59 as well, not '58 as mentioned.
                                Having said that, the hydraulics do absolutely nix for me.
                                I guess that's what makes us all unique.
